The fall 2019 anime series Food Wars! The Plate of God begat the spring 2020 series Food Wars! Strong Plate and that got underway back on April 10th, 2020, for their viewers. We ended up getting word on April 17th, 2020 that the show was being put on hold and that the fourth season was going to get a rebroadcast in its place. The official site had hinted but couched its phrasing carefully in that they were hoping for a July return previously. Now, the site has updated to reveal that the first four episodes will be rerun and that the new season is set to resume on July 3rd, 2020. Check out the tweet with the accompanying TV spot below, which we have in YouTube form as well if Twitter is unavailable to you.
The season has Yoshitomo Yonetani directing it based on the scripts from Shogo Yasukawa. Tomoyuki Shitaya is handling the character designs with JC Staff once again handling the animation production.
The series comes from Yuto Tsukuda and Shun Saeki that began in 2012 and has thirty-six volumes out in Japan when all is said and done. Viz Media has been bringing it over here while the anime has been coming out with a couple of well-received seasons so far of the anime distributed by Sentai Filmworks.
